It is within walking distance of the town square and high street. You are also well-placed for exploration of the wider region including some very popular villages including Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford without forgetting about the pretty Cotswold villages such as The Slaughters, Broadwell, Chipping Campden and many more. The wonderful Shakespearean town of Stratford-upon-Avon is within 30 minutes, so it’s possible to grab tickets for a show at the RSC. Also, add the dramatic Warwick Castle to your list for a fab day out with a picnic.

The elegance and style of this property is immediately apparent when you get to the cottage. On arrival, there are a few stone steps up to the front door and entrance hall. You will soon find the spacious sitting room with comfortable seating, TV/DVD, hi-fi and French doors leading to the private patio. There is also a conservatory for relaxing with a book and just enjoying the surroundings. The kitchen comes fully equipped with an electric hob and oven, a washer/dryer, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer and a payphone. Nearby are the bedrooms; the first is a double bedroom with pleasant views and a king-size, whilst the other bedroom is a twin.

The online description and pictures show the cottage off well but dont give a feel for how comfortable and relaxing it is. It feels secluded but is only a few minutes walk to the centre of Stow and a good centre to explore the Cotswolds by car. The owners are welcoming and there if needed but the cottage and garden are self contained and private. PRead moreerfect. Hide

We had a very enjoyable break here. This is a lovely cottage set in a perfect location - just a few minutes stroll from the village. We hardly used our car as there were plenty of routes to walk and cycle from the door. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely well equipped cottage in great location in Stow on the Wold. Owners very welcoming with useful information on cottage, restaurants and surrounding areas. We particularly appreciated the generous food and drink provided and plentiful supply of toiletries. We would happily return another time.

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
